Open Society Foundations - Open Society Foundation
Unprecedented access 24-hours day gives the public a front-seat to conflict. But how has—and does—the media affect government decisions? Do celebrities play a role in the drive to war? How has that changed in the twenty years since the beginning of the wars in Yugoslavia?
Join the Open Society Foundations for "From Bosnia to Libya: The Impact of War Reporting on Foreign Policy." Tom Gjelten of NPR News moderates the panel with Roger Cohen of the New York Times, David Rieff of The New York Times Magazine, and Lindsey Hilsum of Channel 4 News.
